The Usual Suspects will attack this. Nonetheless, there is a difference between 'treasonous' as a modifier and 'treason' as a noun with a specific Constitutional definition. I agree with you. Here is the etymology of the term, and in its etymology, what he does is 'treasonous.'

" "betraying; betrayal of trust; breach of faith," from Anglo-French treson, from Old French traison "treason, treachery" (11c.; Modern French trahison), from Latin traditionem (nominative traditio) "delivery, surrender, a handing down, a giving up," noun of action from past participle stem of tradere "deliver, hand over," from trans- "over" (see trans-) + dare "to give" (from PIE root *do- "to give"). A doublet of tradition. The Old French form was influenced by the verb trair "betray.""

Donald Trump is without a doubt one of the most reprehensible political figures in US history. That said, this hysterical, infantile re-trumpeting of the warmongering, neocon propaganda against any efforts toward peace is not the only viewpoint on this matter. In contrast, there is a huge amount of grownup analysis and commentary, all around the world. See the following, for example:

Here is a short article about the Trump era leftist "birtherism".

I see this rabid hate of Trump as a kind of mental illness. Trump could walk on water to save people in a sinking boat and rather than say he did a good thing, the left would say he couldn't swim.

I think all this political division and uncivil acrimony began with the 2000 Bush-Gore election going against Gore due to some hanging chads in Florida. The left simply could not accept this unfair, to them, outcome. "It had to be rigged". And the bitterness has metastasized despite having their man Obama in office for 8 years.

Trump worshiped as God...
